Feedback Revision Coming to eBay U.S. on October 20, 2008

Posted on October 7, 2008. Filed under: eBay | Tags: , , , , |

What is Feedback revision?
Feedback Revision lets the buyer change the feedback rating, comment or Detailed Seller Ratings they left for a seller, but only if the seller first sends a request to the buyer asking them to revise the feedback.

 

Why is eBay enabling buyers to change feedback?

Everybody makes mistakes – buyers and sellers alike. Buyers should be able to change the feedback they left if they made a mistake or if the seller rectifies the problem in a timely manner. Unlike Mutual Feedback Withdrawal, buyers will be able to revise the feedback, not just withdraw it.

 

Are there limits to the number of requests a seller can send?

Sellers will have a limited number of requests per year. Having limits will enable sellers who make fewer mistakes to differentiate from sellers who make more mistakes.

Sellers will be allowed to send five requests per 1000 feedback earned per year. So, every seller will have at least five requests per year. High volume sellers (those earning more than 1000 feedback per year) will be able to send more requests – 5 per 1000 per year.

 

What are the limits?

Sellers will be allowed to send five requests per 1000 feedback earned per year. So, every seller will have at least five requests per year. High volume sellers (those earning more than 1000 feedback per year) will be able to send more requests – 5 per 1000 per year.

 

Why limit the number of times a seller can send a request?

We want sellers to continue to focus on providing great service up front, not just addressing problems after they arise.

Based on 2007 Mutual Feedback Withdrawal data, 88% of sellers who earned less than 1000 feedback in 2007 used Mutual Feedback Withdrawal 2 or fewer times for the entire year. As a seller’s volume increased above 20,000 feedback earned per year, they required even fewer requests.

 

Will eBay consider increasing the rate of the requests per 1000 feedback earned?

We will evaluate all aspects of the system, including the limits.

 

Why is the seller required to send a request to the buyer?

It allows the seller to control the process. The seller can choose to send the request only when they are confident the buyer has agreed to change the feedback.

It also is much easier to place limits on sellers than buyers since they transact more frequently.

 

When can a seller send a request?

You can send a request to a buyer to change the feedback within 30 days of the feedback being left.

NOTE: only send requests when you are confident the buyer will change the feedback since you only get five requests per 1000 feedback earned.

 

How much time does the buyer have to respond to the request?

Buyers will have 10 days to respond to the seller’s request.

 

What action can the buyer take when they receive the request?

A buyer will have three options when they receive the request from the seller:

Revise the feedback (rating, comment or Detailed Seller Rating may be changed)

Decline the feedback revision request – no action is taken

Ignore the feedback revision request – no action is taken

 

Why is the feedback not changed when the buyer fails to respond to the request sent by the seller?

eBay will only change a buyer’s feedback when they respond affirmatively to the request. (Sellers should only send a request when the buyer has agreed to revise the feedback.)

 

How many times per transaction can a seller send a request?

Sellers may only send one request to a buyer per transaction.

 

Can a buyer change their feedback rating to a lower rating?

A buyer can not lower their rating, for example they can’t change a positive rating to a neutral or negative; or a neutral to a negative.

Sellers are only able to ask a buyer to change a neutral or negative feedback.

How can you possibly put a limit on something like this ???

What a complete waste of time..eBay really have NO idea what sellers are putting up with

Some sellers are being wiped out with ONLY 2 negative FB from buyers who don’t give a damn if they get suspended or not , so asking them to remove the FB is well just a Joke
